Dela May Haley
The five-year-old daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Will Haley, living in
the Hopewell district, died Thursday from the effects of being burned.
The little girl was trying to put out a fire on the carpet that was
caused by a piece of burning wood falling out of the stove, and
her dress caught fire and she was soon enveloped in flames. She
lived but a few hours and was in terrible agony. The funeral was held
at Hopewell Church Friday afternoon.
